EEEGR – Virtual Workshop: Shaping East Anglia’s Energy Research Priorities

EEEGR are working in partnership with the region’s most prominent energy, marine and environmental science research centres to develop future research and innovation programmes which will further enhance East Anglia as a clean energy powerhouse for the UK and promote  economic and environmental sustainability.

EEEGR are working with the University of East Anglia (UEA); the UK’s Centre for the Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas), headquartered in Lowestoft; the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult which opened its regional office at OrbisEnergy in 2019; and supported by the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership.

The unique characteristics of the Southern North Sea, off the East Anglian coast, create a favourable environment for offshore and coastal energy developments leading to an unparalleled diversity of energy sector companies.

As a result, it is an ideal exemplar for the energy transition, with natural gas and offshore wind players already co-operating on shared data observatories, offshore training and logistics, and opportunities for a future that includes hydrogen production at scale; fish nurseries and biodiversity havens; e-lighthouses for navigation of autonomous vessels; pioneering new ‘aqua-tech’ solutions; better co-ordinated management and regulatory frameworks and much more.

We now want input from businesses and organisation across the energy and marine supply chains to contribute to the shape of these research and innovation themes which will help us create and leverage multi-million pound research programmes to deliver against the priorities identified.

Join us for this virtual workshop on 12th August, hosted by EEEGR, to learn more and contribute to energy research and innovation priorities that will shape our future industry. EEEGR will be using Microsoft Teams to host a collaborative virtual workshop session, and an agenda and background briefing will be circulated prior to the session.
